Relationships in pregnancy

Relationships in pregnancy

Healthy relationships are also important for yours and babies’ wellbeing in pregnancy.

All relationships have tricky moments, it's how they’re experienced and resolved that matters.

Having a baby can sometimes affect the relationship you have with your partner. Even if it isn’t your fist baby, there may still be stresses and strains on your relationship.

There are many factors that can affect these changes, both physical and mental and it is very common. It can sometimes seem difficult to support each other during this time but it's best to reach out to someone and talk about how you are feeling.

If you're worried about your relationship, try and talk about it. You can speak to a friend or family member, but you can also talk to your midwife or healthcare professional.
